Why we belong in the top 50 ...
In recent years, Princeton has increased the diversity of its staff, faculty, and student body and strengthened its academic programs in African American, cultural, and ethnic studies. It has the highest percentage of black undergraduates in the Ivy Leagues and one of the highest percentages of all universities. Princeton also has many top black scholars of note, including Toni Morrison, Cornel West, and Nell Painter. The university recently initiated and expanded several diversity programs, including the Dialogue@Princeton, Bildner Fund for the Advancement of Diversity on Campus, and the Princeton Prize in Race Relations.
I urge BE to reconsider Princeton the next time you evaluate the 50 Best Colleges for African Americans.
